I first shared this homemade dog treat recipe the second year I had this little blog, back in 2012. Back then we had an amazing golden retriever named Bear. He was a fabulous dog that was part of our family until 2016. Just this past spring, in March of 2018 we were finally ready to welcome a new dog to the family and added Maisy, a Goldendoodle girl, to our household. She’s been quite the addition and as we approach our first Christmas with her I was reminded of how I used to make homemade dog treats at Christmas to gift with my normal cookies.
These homemade dog treats are very easy to make and perfect for making with the kids. You probably have everything you need already in your pantry as well! They can be ready in an hour so they are fast as well. I use these cookie cutters when making mine but you can use any shape cookie cutter or simply cut them into bars with a knife before baking.
It’s easy to make homemade dog treats! No fancy ingredients, just pantry staples and you can have homemade treats in an hour!
